Ep. 20 The Dark History & Secrets of The Wizard of Oz | Paranormal Aftermath



“if we walk far enough, says dorothy”

“we shall sometime come to someplace….”

Whether it was singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” or following our own Yellow Brick Road, THE WIZARD OF OZ  is still referenced with great affection to this day. It’s hard to imagine that filming this seminal film was anything but happy and magical, and yet, sadly, it seems there was more than one dark moment during this film’s production back in the late 1930s.

Ever since it premiered back in 1939, rumors have circulated about the making of the film Including the fate of the first Tin Man and a possible suicide.Image result for the haunted wizard of oz

EP. 19 The Winchester Mystery House | Sarah Winchester



In 1886 an eccentric woman named Sarah Winchester travelled from New Haven, Connecticut to San Jose , California, to start a new life. She purchased a small eight-room farmhouse and started a small renovation project that would take 36 years and $5.5 million, only stopping when she passed away in 1922.

Legend has it that she was led by spirits  to California to build a home that would appease the spirits of the victims who were killed by the Winchester Rifle.  The only catch, if she continued building, she would live. Stop and she would die.

 

What clues reside within the home’s walls and windows, Was Sarah Winchester controlled by the spirits of dead to build such a palatial home?  And do those spirits haunt the Winchester mystery house?


EP. 18 The Casting Curse of James Dean, Natalie Woods, Sal Mineo & Nick Adams | Rebel Without A Cause



The Rebel Without A Cause Casting Curse

Hollywood stars may seem larger than life, but of course, they are just as vulnerable to life’s tragedies, including the chance of dying at a young age.  Their celebrity was sometimes brief, sometimes felt for decades. What they had in common was a death that came too soon.

BUT SOMEHOW THEY ALWAYS COME back ….

James Dean once said, “dream as if you’ll live forever; live as if you’ll die today.”

Rebel w/o a cause was a classic film detailing the sordid adventures of a youth struggling with identity and clashing generational attitudes is widely regarded as one of the most significant movies in film history.

One month before the release of Rebel Without a Cause, James Dean,  was killed in a head-on collision while driving his Porsche 550 Spyder, the same vehicle he drove while shooting Rebel.  It was Dean’s premature death that cast a shadow over the film but it was the incredibly emotional and volatile behavior that occurred on set and the horrific death of the lead actor that many have blamed for the curse that followed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Co-Stars Sal Mineo, Nick Adams and Natalie Wood also suffered horrific and premature deaths, Sal being stabbed to death outside his apartment, Nick Adams’ mysterious suicide and Natalie drowning accidentally after falling off her yacht.

EP.14 The Buddhafield Cult, The True Crime & Paranormal Aftermath



Author, Joris Karl Huysmans once stated,

“Worshiping the Devil is no more insane than worshiping God…It is precisely at the moment when positivism is at its high-water mark that mysticism stirs into life and the follies of occultism begin.”

In 1985, recent film-school graduate Will Allen found what appeared to be an exciting community in LA. While searching for the meaning of life and community, Allen was lured by a charismatic South American-born guru known as Michel. With little hesitation, he joined Buddhafield, a group where love and enlightenment flowed in abundance.

It wasn’t until 22 years later that Allen realized he belonged to a cult.  Allen’s film, Holy Hell tells his tale and the secrets of The Buddhafield along with its leader.

The Paranormal aftermath, actor, singer, songwriter, and director Jared Leto was one of the producers of Holy Hell.  While visiting the ghosts of Buddahfield’s past Jared was dealing with supposed ghosts of his new home in Laurel Canyon.

So ditch the flavor aid, grab a smoothie and slip into you favorite speedos, this is the True Crime and Paranormal aftermath of The Buddhafield Cult.
